President Trump announced Thursday that he will withdraw the United States from participation in the Paris climate accordThe asshole did it.
I bet his 63 million voters, including two frequent commenters in the pre-election years, are orgasmic with this premature withdrawal.
It is not only the global climate change, about which I have blogged enough, that worries me. This decision by the worst ever human being will mean that in the international politics of give and take, well, most of the rest of world will begin to work around the US. And when we go knocking on their doors, they will flash their middle fingers to reciprocate trump's gesture.
The US as the "leader of the free world" no more.

I wish people would understand something that many serious people, and the insignificant me, have been saying ever since trump became a candidate: most of his policies are in tune with what most of the GOP is all about. In this context, it is not merely trump who denies global climate change and the human causation of it--that is pretty much the mainstream GOP position. trump just happens to speak crudely and plainly, whereas the "establishment" leaders use appropriate euphemisms!
Oh well ... I feel so exhausted. It is not even five months into the asshole's presidency.
